There’s no official season in which red nails are more fitting. While darker shades do appear more frequently during the colder months of the year and the brighter ones can be spotted on more than your average cougar when it’s summer, the color red is one associated with romance and warmth – not season.
We could lean against the notion of Valentine’s Day fast approaching to justify the sultry shades in this article, but the truth of the matter is that with the bold yet refined hues featured by Deborah Lippman, Jeremy Scott, and more, we do not need an excuse to paint our nails in the color of love.
This ‘laidback glam’ look was inspired after a frisky experiment was made by topping a metallic shade with a swipe of deep red at the tips of the fingernails. This French manicure deviation is a combination of “stunning, yet completely unexpected.”
In a collaboration between Jan Arnold and the CND Creative Ambassador Miss Pop, inspiration has struck using Los Angeles as a muse for Jeremy Scott’s fall 2017 show. Miss Pop painted considerable gold stars on top of the red coat, mimicking the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Every single model’s manicure was one of a kind at designer Tracy Reese’s presentation. Individuality was emphasized, and manicurist Geraldine Holford was an expert in creating a fun yet clean look, which she pulled by painting thick lines of garnet finish in irregular spots, including right smack in the middle, diagonally from the top and across the center of nails.
British & Indian
Naomi Gonzalez, the lead manicurist for Zoya, explains that “the design was inspired by the detailed collection and Sachin & Babi’s vision of two very different cultures – British and Indian – coming together.” A half-moon manicure was painted by Naomi, who used gold and deep red shades for the illustration.
